|Excerpts from classic TV broadcasts featuring African-Americans - Matthew Paul Argall|
I'm not sure if this video is legal, but here's a collection of clips of appearances by African-Americans on US television between 1949 and 1960, and possibly some unrelated stuff that probably shouldn't be in the video. I had a lot of trouble putting this together, I hope it turned out OK (Note: the "Amos 'n' Andy" clip comes from the "Stars in the Eye" TV special, and not from the show itself, which is still copyrighted)

|'The Beulah Show' - The Waltz|
'The Beulah Show' was the first TV series to feature an African American woman in the lead role. This episode is called "The Waltz". The show starred Hattie McDaniel. It's commonly believed that most episodes of this show were destroyed. The show was controversial for claims of "racial stereotyping", though to be honest, I could think of plenty of shows that did the same thing years later without complaint.
